Snedeker on Feherty: The Batman of Slow Play
It looks like this next episode of “Feherty” featuring Brandt Snedeker will be a good one. He speaks to David Feherty about how he, for lack of a better description, takes the law into his own hands when it comes to slow players. Everyone knows that Sneds wastes no time when coming up to a shot. He’s fast at the tee. A couple quick thumps of the ground with his driver and the ball is gone. That pop stroke on the green takes no time at all. The way he sees it is that slow players affect their competitor’s game while they are still allowed to keep at their pace — they’ll just get a warning which never materializes into anything else. Even after last summer’s “Pace of Play” month, there has yet to be any significant movement in the right direction of enforcement or change. But, we did see a 14-year-old Guan Tianlang penalized for slow play at the Masters last year.
Well, Brandt Snedeker let David Feherty in on a little secret — he slows down his play on repeat offenders to make sure they get fined by the commish. The logic is that Snedeker is a known fast player, so being put on the clock is not very likely to affect him down the road.
We like Brandt Snedeker’s vigilante justice. Check out the video from GolfChannel.com below, and make sure to tune into this episode of “Feherty” Monday 10 p.m. ET.
